    Yes, sprint has the unlimited all day, any day data usage free for PCS Vision plan... I think it's an additional $10.

    Verizon... A different story... dataplan is included in all plans because of the GET IT NOW phones... But it WILL use regular minutes... So it is unlimited during nites and weekends... I used it all the time...(have Kyocera 7135 palmfone + USB datacable...browsing the carputer @ 144kbp)

    Verizon also have a $50 dataplan that you can buy that gives unlimited data usage all day any day...(that's on top of your regular calling plan) That plans is actually for the blackberry...but you can put it on others phone that has dataplan...



    I DO envy Sprints users with their better phone selections and their unlimited all day any day data usage...

    I think if you won't abuse your free dataplan... they would care at all... but if you do it too regularily that someone notices it and cares... byebye account.

    The only way anyone is going to notice is if they either pulled up your individual account (a customer service rep when you called) or if they had software to specifically scan for large amounts of datatransfer. Even if someone did notice it is doubtful that they could rationalize closing your account (not a bad way of getting out of a contract ). It says in the plan details that you get unlimited internet access.... There is no way of them knowing if you are using that on your computer or phone.

    Sprint vision is $15. Here are the plan details:
    SMS Text Messaging – send or receive up to 100 text messages a month (requires an SMS-enabled Sprint PCS Phone)
    • Unlimited Sprint PCS Vision Access includes:
    • Unlimited email and instant messaging from America Online® and Yahoo!®
    Unlimited Web access
    • Unlimited Picture MailSM – take, upload and send an unlimited number of pictures
    • Sprint PCS Business ConnectionSM Personal Edition. Unlimited access to your Microsoft® Outlook® or Lotus® Notes company email, calendar, business directory and personal contacts in real time on select Sprint PCS Phones
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    i have the biggest package sprint offers, all the bonuses 2000 anytime unlimited night and weekend starting at 7 and unlimited data transfer,(browsing), so i would use this feature to browse. i guess i could get a laptop and plug into my monitors. i understand the text visibility issue using the composite inputs but they are high resolution monitors escpecialy the head unit avhp7500dvd. i just think that jury rigging a laptop isn't the best way. what we be a straightforward "built in" system that would let me do the same?

    I use the DataChute from Antec. It allows me to use any pcmcia card in my car pc. Plugs into a pci slot. Adapter is the same size as a floppy drive. Accepts two pcmcia cards. Getting ready to actually order the pcmcia modem card. Haven't decided on sprint or verizon. Here in Ohio they are both $80 month for unlimited data access.

    another option IF you want faster access. but its a bit more complicated to do.
    subscribe to sattelite internet which has speeds comparale to DSL. and get a router.
    you could Wifi if you want wireless.
    just an idea

    If price is no object... then why not just get a laptop and shove it under the passenger seat when you're not using it. Seriously... the composite screens are going to look like crap. You're going to need an input device, so that means keyboard and trackball (mouse). So, unless youre going to rip out one of your monitors and replace it with a VGA; mount a computer in the car; mold a track ball into the console; and get a wireless keyboard......... it might be easier and faster.

    How about some linkage to your project so we can see what we're dealing with?

    No it is not.

    Lemme guess, it says 1440x234 ?

    Well that first measurement (horizontal) is in RGB dots not pixels.
    3 dots = 1 pixel.
    1 R, 1 G, 1 B

    The second measurement (vertical) is in pixels.

    The panel is 480x234.

    And yet at that link it says pixels not dots. And just for the record a computer looks fine when connected to Avic-N1.
